Two Greenbrier County residents were booked on Tuesday, October 13 on charges relating to an incident that occurred back on August 15.
Robert Clyde Wilson, 31, of Alta Dr. in Asbury and Priscilla Ann Nunez, 32, of W. Clayton Rd. in Alderson have been taken into custody for allegedly being in possession of a schedule-one narcotic with intent to distribute.
On August 15, 2020, police were dispatched to the Super 8 Motel, located at 160 Hilltop Dr. in Lewisburg, to investigate reports of suspicious activity related to possible drug use. According to the criminal complaint, the front-desk clerk alleged that a male suspect (later identified as Wilson) advised that he and a female suspect (later identified as Nunez) “had been doing cocaine and were sorry.”
Officers then deployed two K9s for a free-air sniff in the vicinity of room 118. The animals indicated that there was the odor of narcotics present near the room. The complaint states that officers then knocked on the door, and were invited into the room by Wilson, and found Nunez seated on the bed. Wilson allegedly sat beside her on the bed, and attempted to conceal a silver container under the pillow.
The complaint states that officers asked Wilson what he was hiding, at which point Wilson handed the container to the officers and allegedly stated that it contained only bags. Wilson then gave officers verbal permission to open the container. Upon looking inside the container, officers allegedly found four-small bags containing a black, sticky substance. According to the complaint, “The substance was packaged consistent as if it were for sale.”
The complaint also states that two books were in plain view of the officers. Upon investigation, the books were revealed to contain hidden compartments which concealed several unused bags, a digital scale and used needles. Wilson is alleged to have told police that there were no drugs present in the room, and invited officers to allow their K9s to search the room. Wilson and Nunez remained in the hallway while the search was performed. According to the criminal complaint, the K9 identified a shoe in the room that contained approximately 2.8 grams of a black, sticky substance. Officers then performed a field-test on the substances found in the shoe, as well as the silver container. Both tested positive as heroin. Wilson and Nunez are currently being held at Southern Regional Jail, each on a $10,000 surety/cash bond.
